West Terrace Cemetery in Park 23 is Adelaide's oldest. It also includes Australia's first military cemetery.
The Wirrarninthi Environmental Education Trail was developed in 2015 by a team of four people participating in a 'Community Leaders' program. It assists walkers to look around, explore, investigate and use your imagination.
